An Australian lager, pale straw in colour with flowery aromas. Brewed with Australian and German malts. Lightly hopped for that refreshing taste.

4.7%ABV. Pale Lager The one I had was sold at tap as "Iron House Limited Edition German Pale Lager", so while the deScription seems to suggest that this is the same beer I had on tap as the straight lager, I cannot be completely sure. This may explain why I apparently liked mine better than everybody else. Tapped out a slightly cloudy blonde. 3°SRM. Mouthfeel is soapy with nice carbonation. There is a slight sourness that coupled with the hoppy finish is somehow suggestive of a nice yellow grapefruit. The grain flavors are pale malt with water biscuits, soda cream crackers and raw peanuts. There are some wheaty-rye type flavors of raw rough dough, multigrain bread and wheat flour. Good medium hoppy finish with nice hebaceous bitter flavor like a grapefruit peel. There are some nice bright citrus flavor notes as well; lemon zest, grapefruit. Some neat pine and grassy flavors as well. Overall impression is that this drinks more like a pils than a lager mainly because of the pronouced hop character. Goes on Favorites List!

Bottle 330ml at the last jar, near uni. Cidery lager, in a good way. Aromas of green apples and citrus. Taste is sweet, with sour notes, average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, cloudy, with a thin head.

30ml bottle. Light straw in colour with a fluufy, cloud like white head that hangs around. Clear until the last bit is poured, contains some sediment but this does not detract form the overall appearance. Light flowery and lemon rind aroma, like the first day of spring. Crisp and lively in the mouth with a refreshing sweetness.

Tried from the tap at the Tassie beerfest. Gold body with short head. Mainly malt flavours noticeable in aroma and taste, drank alright for an Aussie lager.

Lots of honey and citrus right through the nose and palate; somewhat unexpected. A touch sour too, such is the relatively high intensity of the citrus. Not a great beer, but not bad for the style.

Pours pale golden with a nice white head that dissapears pretty quickly. Nose has some serious honey going on. Palate has lively carbonation with the overt honey notes popping up again. Typical Aussie malt brings some dry musty grain. Some mild dry grassy bitterness on the finish. Overall, really flavoursome but none of the characters I tend to go for. Almost too overt that the malt comes across cheap or adjunct?? I can see what they’ve tried to do, just not my thing.

Sampled in Tassie. Quite a good brew for Australia. Pours nicely with a light head. Nice dark brown hue.

330 ml bottle - Straw gold in colour with a long lasting white head. I don’t generally enjoy pale lagers but this was one was a better than many. An interesting flowery aroma and flavour. Medium carbonation and body. Only a very mildly bitter finish but quite refreshing.

Cloudy yellow amber colour with a thin white head. Medium bodied with light too moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Sweet malty flavours present in the refreshing finish. An above average and very enjoyable Australian pale lager. 330ml bottle.
